At TKHC, creativity is the focus within the Visual Arts department. We start from the philosophy that the best art comes from an insightful and reflective interpretation illuminated by an appreciation of historical and contemporary art practice, and first hand artmaking experience. Together, we aim to offer our students as wide a variety of approaches to making art as possible, from painting to charcoal drawing, from ceramic sculpture to digital drawing.
In the G7-G8 Foundation Years Programme, there is a strong emphasis on building and developing foundational skills such as understanding the elements of art (colour, form, texture, shape, line, space and value) and the principles of design (contrast, proportion, repetition, balance, emphasis, unity and movement).
In the 2021-22 academic year, the Visual Arts department will be moving into the brand new InnoBuilding which accommodates a state-of-the-art Visual Arts room that also incorporates a ceramics room with adjoining damp and kiln rooms.
